It just needs some more plants and better lighting.
well done looks good
And it will continue to improve.
Thank you....Amazing how a piece of driftwood can change the behavior of the fish.
Suggestions always welcome!
As a matter of personal preferance, I like a background on a tank
A plain colour (not one of those aquascapes) and something light. My tank is plain black and it gives it a dark, moody look. With hindsight I should have gone for something a bit lighter.
That is true. The black makes it look a lot "deeper" much like a mirror makes a room look bigger. I'm not crazy about the substrate though, but will probably layer something on top of that later.
Looking really nice, well done!
Love that wood!
I also agree that the black makes it look too dark, I also putblack on my 2.3m and it makes it just too dark.
Fortunately I didn’t glue it completely so I am thinking ofchanging it to something lighter
Yeah I just used Prestik so I can still change it easily. Maybe a darkish grey will work. I just need to sort the lighting out first.
Your tank is looking really great..
I love black on the backs of my tanks.. It makes the colour of the fish stand out so much better..
Just my opinion..
I think so too but I'm having second thoughts now...There is quite a bit of tannins from the driftwood which combined with the black background makes it look quite dark. I know I can get stuff for the tannins but that's another expense I would like to avoid.
With or without?
I prefer the black back ground the colour just seems more intense
Tank is looking good either way
I must admit that the background in your tank does look good.
I should add that the cabinet and lid of my tank are also black. So perhaps that accentuates the dark look inside the tank?
I have to agree with everyone, the black background look good and highlights the other colours...
Black at back is awesome
I have to agree that on this tank it looks stunning
Look great man! As a fellow planted tank owner myself, great job!
What are you using as a background
Definitely black!! :biggrin:
The tannins will dissipate, your filters and water changes will take care of that (most times without the expensive additives).. Just give it time..
